    A great purchase (20 November 2019)

    I love these stamps so much more than I expected. The size is perfect for creating floral clusters on 12x12 pages, and they've stamped beautifully with Distress Oxides, Lawn Fawn cubes, Kaisercraft cubes, Wendy Vecchi archival ink and CTMH dye ink. The leaves came out a little bit patchy with Studio Calico inks (but these usually my worst stamping inks anyway).

    I bought the matching die but haven't actually used it yet as I've found these really easy to fussy cut. I've had this set on my wish list since it was released and I really wish I bought it then, I've used it several times already and can see it will become a staple in my stamping stash.

    Not what I had hoped for (29 April 2017)

    I'll confess I am a little disappointed in these scissors overall. After reading so many glowing reviews I chose these over another option I was considering. While they have been great for detail cutting one of the selling points was the positive reviews for the non stick blades. Unfortunately I have found the blades gum up quite easily (much more quickly than my $2 scissors from the office supply store). I was hoping for a good pair of all round scissors but these are not the ones.

    Nicer than expected (29 April 2017)

    I bought this for the pale blue pattern and was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it was in person. It was a little more muted than it appears on my monitor.

    Adorable! (29 April 2017)

    I love this die. The bows it makes are tiny and totally adorable. I love to add them as a little detail in clusters. I haven't yet used the tail on the bow, but the width of the completed bow is about 27mm (1.25in).

    Not as pretty as I had expected (29 April 2017)

    Using the product image as a guide I expected the pale pink dots to have just a hint of pink in them instead they are most definitely baby pink. The white dots are more of a yellow based white than the image shows on my monitor.

    Packaging colour is misleading (29 April 2017)

    I was disappointed to discover the actual colour of this tape is more mustard than the yellow shown on the packaging image. While the colour will still work with my overall style and product preferences it won't be the go to yellow washi I had hoped for.

    Lovely to look at but unfortunately would not recommend (18 September 2016)

    The positives:
    * the colour is lovely but gold, not copper (which is how they appeared on my monitor)
    * rub on easily

    The negatives:
    * if you lay them on your project without the backing sheet (without rubbing them on) that's where they will stay
    * half of the designs didn't peel off the backing sheet properly, they just tore. The leaves can be rescued by layering them under other elements but the words cannot be saved. This was particularly disappointing.
